6. Adjuster’s Appointment

Make sure you give the contractor the insurance adjuster’s appointment time and name so they can be there to meet them on your behalf. This way, no items needing repair will be overlooked.

7. FREE Inspections

Lastly, do not pay for any inspections, either personally or from your insurance proceeds. Roofing companies offer this service FREE of charge. If you are being charged, then they are independent adjusters, not contractors. This service is already included through your insurance company at no charge to you.

  1. Thanks for letting me know that roofing companies will offer inspections for free. That is the kind of work I want. I’d be much more likely hire a roofer if they give me something for free.

    1. Yes, it is important to know that inspections are always free. There are companies that perform inspections only for a percentage of your insurance money, which will make it harder for you to find a roofing contractor. Most roofing companies like to do everything in-house, which is why they offer free inspections.
